AttachmentThe opposite of attachment is not detachment. The opposite of attachment is non attachment. Now let me explain you the difference between detachment and non attachment. In detachment you become detached to the world or to your environment. It could be a form of escapism. The whole idea is to have non attachment, where you are in the world and yet not attached to the world. You are in the world, yet not of the world. That is non attachment. That means you partake of everything, you wear clothes, you live in houses, you have wives and husbands and families, and you live normally. And yet you can still stand apart and observe the play. For is this whole world not a stage, as Shakespeare would say?
